An Evening Program for Parents
BE THE PARENT, PLEASE: Stop Banning Seesaws and Start Banning Snapchat
A Skype-visit presentation by author Naomi Schaefer Riley
AMHERST – How much screentime is too much for our children? The explosion of technology in the world today is presenting parents with the daily challenge of determining a healthy level of interaction with the on-screen world for their children.
Please mark your calendars for this important program at the Amherst Town Library, Wednesday March 27 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM to hear author Naomi Schaefer Riley discuss her recent book, bringing to the conversation the latest research on technology usage and drawing from her own experience as a mother of three. She will talk about how to address concerns we are beginning to feel about our children and the time they spend engaged with electronic devices. We’ll learn what the latest research is showing about this issue, and also get some practical tips on how to set limits on your own children’s technology use.
